The Pool

Barrusclet farmhouse gite has a 12 x 6 metre Roman style heated swimming pool. The pool is within view of the house and sheltered on two sides by stone barns. It has views across open countryside and woodland to the other two sides.

It is a saline pool, which everybody says is kinder to the eyes and skin than a chlorine pool. It is fenced and gated to comply with French regulations.

There is a generous tiled terrace with a gazebo to offer shelter from the midday sun, and plenty of sun loungers.

The swimming pool is for sole use of guests renting the farmhouse and it is really lovely to relax or play in.  In this area of South West France the weather is often warm enough to use the pool from April through to October.


“Pool absolutely superb – water beautiful and clean and 23 degrees just right. Loved the midnight swim.”
